We a complete job, from start to finish. We remove wildlife humanely and effectively, using the proper traps, tools, and techniques for each unique animal and situation.
When we encounter animals inside a house, we inspect every part of the house, from ground level to every part of the roof, to identify all the areas of entry, and all vulnerable
areas, and we perform professional repairs, with guarantee, to seal entry holes shut. We inspect inside the attic to find any damage or biohazard, and provide full cleaning services. We offer attic decontamination, poison-free and permanent rodent control,
bat colony exclusion, bird prevention, snake removal, dead animal removal and odor control, and more.
Chicago is near lake Michigan, and of course our cold climate means that wildlife activity slows down in the winter - but squirrels and rats are still very active during this time, and raccoons occasionally show up. In the summer, skunks, groundhogs, moles, and bats are
more active. We service the greater Chicago metropolitan area, including Cook County, DuPage County, Kane County, Kendall County, Lake County, McHenry County and Will County. We service surrounding towns such as Aurora, Elgin, Joliet, Naperville, Arlington Heights, Berwyn,
Bolingbrook, Cicero, Des Plaines, Evanston, Hoffman Estates, Mount Prospect, Oak Lawn, Oak Park, Orland Park, Palatine, Schaumburg, Skokie, Tinley Park, Waukegan, Wheaton, Glenview, and more.
NOTE: We are not the Cook County Animal Control Services. We do provide wildlife removal in Cook County Illinois, but we are a private company. Please do not call us regarding any matters that should be directed to the free county animal services. They deal

How many stray cats are in Chicago, IL?
Today, Chicago, IL, is facing a problem of increasing numbers of stray cats. You have probably seen them wandering through parks and hanging around restaurants. At first sight, you might think that the cats are domesticated, but when you look closer, you will realize that they are strays and could hurt you if you got so close.
It should be noted that these cats did not just appear out of nowhere. They are the offspring of pets that have been abandoned, lost and strays. They have most likely been raised without any human contact, and are, therefore, not used to having people touch them. As a result, they have reverted to the wild and try to look for food and shelter. These cats have become so many today, because many of the cities in the US are only obligated to deal with stray dogs and not stray cats. The cats have, therefore, remained untouched for decades and their numbers just keep rising.
As a result of little done to control the population of stray cats today, research has established that there are over seventy million strays in Chicago, IL. Since little is being done to control the population od cats, and given the fact that cats have the ability to, reproduce extremely fast, the population is expected to rise in the coming years.
The high population of these cats has worried so many ornithology and wildlife organizations, since the population affects so many other animals. Cats have been known to attack birds and, therefore, dangerous to the bird population. In addition, these cats also pose a great danger to the health of humans, since they carry so many diseases. Most of these organizations recommend that these cats should be removed from the streets and taken to animal shelters.
However, it should be noted that in most cases when they are taken to these animals shelters, they are killed. This has caused a lot of objections from animal advocates, who say that cats are being blamed for things that are not their fault. As a result, many organizations have come up to control the population these cats through sterilization programs. In these programs, the cats that already exist are either neutered or spayed, so as to control their ability to have offspring, thus, eventually controlling their population. When these cats have been sterilized, they are taken back to the places where they were found and allowed to live their lives normally, only that they are not able to reproduce. This way, the cats are not killed, and the population is controlled.
However, it should be noted, that though, these programs have been implemented, there are still so many cats around, and these cats still pose a danger to wildlife. It has been established that Cats kill millions of birds annually, which is not ideal. Overall, Chicago is facing a stray cat problem, but certain measures have been taken to make certain that the problem is either controlled or overcome entirely.
